I’m writing this on the last evening of July, ready to welcome a brand new month with an open mind + heart.
With my (30th!) birthday coming up in the first week of August, I’m feeling a strong pull to make positive changes in my life.
I’m noticing what’s currently working + what’s not. I’m finding my flow + have a deep desire to design my life my way, like a work of art.
Lately I’ve been experiencing a heavy load of anxiety. It shows up in my body as constriction, unease + shortness of breath. It shows up in my mind as fear, worry + cluttered thoughts.
I decided I needed to take a look at how I live my day-to-day life + see what changes I can make to find the ease in body + mind.
What do I need to do (or not do) to feel a sense of well-being, clarity + connection? What do I need to do to take good care of myself? What is non-negotiable in my daily life? What makes me feel most free + alive?
My current daily non-negotiables: Writing. Meditation. Yoga. Being in nature.
Right now, these are the things that keep my sane, healthy, heart-centered, connected + free. These are the things that allow me to heal + feel the way that I most want to feel. So I’ve been making sure to carve out time each day in order to nourish myself fully.
As this new month begins, I invite you to join me in slowing down + taking a moment to check in with yourself to see what’s working + what’s not. What can you do (or not do) to simply feel good more of the time?
Below are a few questions to ask ourselves as we begin August with a sense of clarity. Grab a pen + paper or open an online document + let it flow.
- What’s working? What are you grateful for right now?
- What’s not working? What do you want to change?
- What feeds your body, mind + soul, makes you come alive, frees your heart? What are your daily non-negotiables?
- What is your intention for the month of August? What do you want to focus on? What do you want to create? How do you want to feel? And what will you do to feel the way you want to feel?
Wishing you love, sunshine, freedom + clarity in the month of August.
Take care of you. Live life fully.
